Koerperwelten / bodyworlds
Yesterday I've been to an exhibit called "Koerperwelten/bodyworlds". I don't know how well known it is in the world but here in Germany - where it actually comes from - there is a lot of controversy going on about it. It's a display of preserved bodies or bodyparts, human and animals.
I was thinking quite a while about whether or not to go. It was somewhat disconcerting to see these bodies thinking they were once breathing living humans. But it was their wish to be seen like that. And for me it was absolutely interesting to see a body like that. All these different views of a body.
I can really recommend going there ...
The picture is not from the exhibit it is from one of my sculpture's. I intend to make a cold bronze casting with it.
